Criminal Law

Every Stage of Criminal Proceedings

In criminal proceedings, the only person on your side is your attorney. Having a run-in with law enforcement can be a frightening and embarrassing experience. It may also place your future at great risk. Criminal allegations or a conviction can affect your career and employment, not to mention educational opportunities and your reputation as a whole. You may find that personal relationships are threatened or even destroyed.

Felony Criminal Charges

Felonies involve a property crime, theft, sex offense, drug crime, violent crime or other crimes against a person. When you are faced with felony charges, you need an experienced advocate to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are treated fairly in court. A felony arrest is not to be ignored or just “hope for the best”. You are facing jail/prison time, fines, and loss of your liberty.
